For the first time, using satellite Earth remote sensing data, the maps of air pollution risks by nitrogen dioxide (NO2) over the territory of Europe with spatial resolution of 0.25º×0.25º (approximately 27.5 km × 18 km for the 48º latitude) were created. The suggested risk calculation technique is simple yet delivers extensive understanding of typical air pollution character. It is shown that the highest risks of air pollution by nitrogen dioxide in Europe are observed over Germany, Belgium, Netherlands and southern part of the North Sea as well as over large cities.
